The objectives of this project were to (a) assess hypertension and diabetes screening data collection practices and guidelines and (b) develop and test standardized screening forms for use at minority community- and faith-based screening events. Project Phase I involved resource assessment and the development of a set of screening forms and guidelines containing a core data set for both hypertension and diabetes. These were then tested during Phase II at predetermined communitybased screening events throughout the United States. Community- and faith-based health screening programs are important in reaching and informing individuals in selected communities about their health and health risks. This study demonstrated the development of a standard tool that was effective in conducting African American community-based screening programs for hypertension and diabetes by community-based organizations. These activities are effective to obtain standardized information on individuals within the communities served.
